Benefits of Telemedicine Services

Telemedicine services allows you to visit with your doctor on your computer or mobile device

According to Thomas S. Nesbitt, M.D., M.P.H., telemedicine has existed for decades (NCBI). However, as technology has improved, so has telemedicine delivery services.

Research has shown that 75% of respondents are interested in telemedicine services (Healthcare Innovation). With the COVID-19 situation, many employers and individuals are seeking alternative healthcare options. Telemedicine services have been more popular than ever as people fear exposure to COVID-19 having to visit doctor’s offices and other financial concerns.

Telemedicine offers incredible benefits for both employers and employees alike. Here are just a few benefits to consider when exploring telemedicine as an option for employee healthcare needs.
